Opening For Bioinformaticians - University of Glasgow

 Research Institute of Cancer Sciences
 
Grade 7/8: £33,242 – 37,394 / £40,847 - £47,328 per annum
 
There are three Bioinformatician posts available, across Grades 7 and 8.
 
As part of a new initiative, the Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre (WWCRC) at the University of Glasgow (www.gla.ac.uk/researchinstitutes/cancersciences/facilities) is pioneering translational cancer research, focusing on developing improved diagnostic and therapeutic choices for cancer. 
 
In order to develop World Class Precision Medicine for Cancer, the newly-established WWCRC hosts next generation sequencing facilities and is establishing significant computational infrastructure. It is led by senior scientists (Professor Andrew Biankin, Professor Sean Grimmond and Dr Oliver Hofmann) who have significant expertise and experience in cancer genomics and its application to clinical practice. The former recently relocated from Australia and contribute to international consortia such as the ICGC (www.icgc.org) and the TCGA (see www.pancreaticcancer.net.au).
 
We seek experienced computational biologists / bioinformaticians with an interest in genome interrogation to contribute to the translational research agenda of the WWCRC. Currently 3 positions are open for those with an interest to use genomics and other –omic data to inform therapeutic development and treatment decisions for patients in clinical trials and in clinical practise. The posts are funded for 3 years in the first instance.
 
Please direct informal enquiries to Professor Andrew Biankin (andrew.biankin@glasgow.ac.uk).
